This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of up to 8 people of a similar standard
  • Contact details are emailed
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everybody!
  • We welcome beginners as well as advanced players.
  • Don't worry that you won't be good enough - playing matches is the best way to improve, and we use an online questionnaire to assess people's ability so you play only people of a roughly similar level
  • Affiliated to the LTA For adults aged 18 years and above 

Key points

  • Matches are best of three sets; if a set reaches 6 games all it is decided by a tiebreak
  • The evening before the round starts you will receive an email with all the contact details of the players in your group
  • Players are placed in groups according to past performance in the league and, for new players, their Player Standard Questionnaire
  • Each player attempts to play each of the other player on their group once during the round
  • If you complete three matches before the midpoint of a round you receive 2 bonus points and a bonus prize (either a pair of Local Tennis Leagues dampeners, or a tube of tennis balls).
  • The winner of the group is the player with the most points at the end of the round
  • The winner of the group wins a certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

New players will need to complete the player questionnaire before they can join a round. Once you’ve signed up, and for returning players you can join any of the upcoming rounds above.

For everything you need to know before you get started see the FAQs and review the Rules and Regulations, which all players agree to adhere to when playing in the leagues.

Player Comments:

  • "A lot was at stake in this must win match for both players on a misty evening at Hornfair Park. Lateef started best winning 1st set 6-4 before Martin responded back winning second set with the same numbers. Unknowingly this would be a sign of the closeness and the madness which were due to follow. In the 3rd set the match swayed between the players where both players broke each others serve when they took control and dictated the play. Martin thought he had won it at 5-4 gaining 2match points before Lateef turned the match on its head bringing the match to a tiebreak! Lateef thought he won the match leading 6-1 with 5matchpoints in the tiebreak but Martin crawled his way back and finally won an exhausting battle (10-8)! A remarkable match.

  • "Despite the scoreline it was a close contest between two very evenly matched opponents. One game had at least 20 deuces :)"  -- Robert
Reveal CommentAmit Dave bt Lateef Abdulsalam (Feb 6) 7-6 (7-3), 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Extremely cold conditions at Hornfair. Not a soul to be seen or heard, for who would brave such difficult playing conditions? Yep. That'd be us. Lateef put the squeeze on Amit early in the first set. Cold conditions made moving around the court arduous. Amit chased after Lateef, each breaking each others serves to take it to a first set tiebreaker. Consistent serving meant Amit took the first set. The second set had Amit firmly in the drivers seat to take the second and final set for the eventual win. Lateef has a mean first serve and a sharp eye for spotting weakness in his opponent. Well played Lateef. It was a pleasure."  -- Amit
Reveal CommentChris Starkiewicz bt Seb Creighton (Feb 4) 6-3, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Good tough match with most games going to deuce. The wind was a challenge with a few breaks of serve in both sets. Chris won a few of the big points in the second set to close it out "  -- Chris
Reveal CommentAmit Dave bt Seb Creighton (Feb 3) 4-6, 6-2, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "Spitting with rain on the courts and as such it was a tentatively played match with slipping and sliding from both parties. Seb took the lead in the first set exploiting the breaks early on. Amit tried to bring it back but Seb closed out the first set with ease. Second and third set saw Amit's focus sharpen and he played Seb around the court more and forced those errors. Brilliant lobbing from Seb and a very consistent play on his backhand side. Great match!"  -- Amit
Reveal CommentSeb Creighton bt Martin Andersen (Jan 28) 6-4, 3-6, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "Cracking start to this league, thank you Martin for this match!! In every set, there was a ridiculous amount of deuces as well as breaking each other's serve. This match could have gone either way and would definitely be up for playing Martin again."  -- Seb
Reveal CommentAmit Dave bt Robert Dixon (Jan 27) 6-7 (2-7), 6-3, 6-1

Player Comments:

  • "A windy and overcast day on the hard courts at Hornfair. Very slippery too as Amit found out on one painful occasion. Rob steamed ahead in the first set to 5-0 before Amit got his wits about him and chased him down for a pretty one sided tie-breaker where Rob outplayed Amit with some class shots. Second set was neck and neck with Rob and Amit continuously breaking each others serves until Amit took the lead to close out the set with some sneaky drops and slices. The final set was dominated with Amit finding his eye with his groundstrokes and serves."  -- Amit

Player Comments:

  • "The score flatters Angus who took advantage of a distinct breeze on the cold, exposed courts of Eltham Park to exploit a dip in Mirko's service game. Many thanks for an entertaining match!"  -- Angus
Reveal CommentAngus Bearn bt Andy Ferreira (Feb 4) 6-2, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Fascinating match in the cold and horribly over-priced Greenwich Park! Andy's game improved very rapidly (as the scores demonstrate). The outcome might well have been different but for a tightening of Andy's hamstring. Angus took full advantage by knocking balls out of reach (well, it IS a competition!) and scraped through. Greatly looking forward to a rematch sometime soon. "  -- Angus
Reveal CommentLuke Armitage bt Andy Ferreira (Jan 28) 6-4, 6-7 (5-7), 6-4

Player Comments:

  • "This was the first match (and the first hit of any kind!) for a long time for both myself and Andy, so we had an extended half hour warm up before commencing. Lack of matchplay showed, with service games tending to go to the returner! After a hard fought second set, both of us were ready to call it a day but persevered despite diminishing light. Towards the end of the third set, lactic acid had built up in the legs, feet, arms, hands and pretty much any part of the body involved in the match. Movement was at a premium, but we completed the match with Luke winning in three. "  -- Luke

Player Comments:

  • "Good match on a lovely, crisp winter evening. In truth it was very tight - the first set was matched game for game until the very end of the set where I took the advantage. Second set John came out fighting and broke my serve for a quick 3-0 lead. I clambered back to 3-3 and it became as tight and tough as the first set had been. Again, in the end, a couple of points went my way at the end of the set to finish it 6-4 6-4. In truth the match was balanced on a couple of points and could easily have swung the other way! Great way to start off this round."  -- Ryan
